Space Bar, The box cover

Space Bar, The screenshot
The Space Bar is a fun space comedy romp by the inimitable Steve Meretzky where you play Alias Node, a cop on a quest to find your partner's attacker in a seedy space bar. The game's best innovation is the ability to experience the suspect's memories from their perspectives. There are 7 such "scenarios" you can play, most of them in any order, to obtain vital clues. Unfortunately, it's marred by frustrating amount of CD-swapping, some fatal bugs, severe time constraints and unforgiving gameplay that will force you to restore numerous times. With 50 or more hours required to solve the mystery, only veteran gamers need apply.
